Definately an interesting topic. I think that it comes down to the mindset of the writers and the fact that they wanted them to be so different. On the one hand with Caves, they had a really popular Doctor making his final appearance and they needed him to go out with a bang, so they had to make sure they had a brilliant story which was fitting of his tenure. Then on the other hand with Dilemma, the story needed to take a back seat because the focus had to be on the incoming Doctor and making him stand out apart from Peter Davison and get the audience to quickly get to know him. On top of that, they decided to make him so vastly different, so a bulk of the story was made up of him being shouty and mean and introducing this whole new character, so they weren't really even writing for a character that they were that used to.

There was far more riding on TTD than there was TCOA and they are worlds apart, but I think that is mainly because the writers took a big risk with something that ultimately didn't pay off
